Muslim chronicles on somanatha

Jyotirlinga-Somanatha Page13

This is not borne out by, known historical facts. Ibnu'l Athir, Mir Khwand17 and others mention that the Sultan had re solved upon making the expedition because be wanted to dispel the false belief of the Hindus that the invader could have destroyed no idols in India had they not incurred the displeasure of the great idol of Somanatha. These are pure legends.

Thus it appears that the original temple and fort of Somanatha were burnt to the ground in A.D. 1026. Some modern historians, in view of the new or conflicting testimony available, find it difficult to say with propriety where they actually stood 924 years ago.

It was suggested by some that the temple probably represented the remains of temples of at least two different periods.
